    Question Is my computer capable of running Mac OS X Snow Leopard?

    I found this tutorial, here, to build a "Hackintosh." In the tutorial he gives the specific parts (here) that will work with that guide, but I was wondering if my computer could run Mac OS X Snow Leopard with its current configuration, or if there are some parts I should upgrade. I was thinking about buying the hard drive that he suggested (here) and an Asus WL-138G-V2 Wireless PCI Card (here), which is compatible with Mac OS X, I've already checked.
    __________

    My current hardware specs are:
    Processor: Intel® Core™2 Quad Q6600 quad core processor with VT

    Chipset: Intel G33

    RAM: 3072 MB DDR2, 667 MHz, (PC2-5300) dual channel memory (two 1024 MB and two 512 MB modules)

    Hard Drive: 500 GB, 7200 RPM, SATA II hard drive (Support for up to two hard drives)

    Optical Drive: DVD ±RW, 18X multi-format dual layer drive

    Video Card: NVIDIA® GeForce® 9800GT 1GB Onboard Video Memory DVI-I with HDCP with VGA Adapter

    Audio: Integrated 8-Channel (7.1) High Definition Audio

    Network Support (possibly upgrading this to Asus WL-138G-V2 Wireless PCI Card): Integrated Intel 10/100 Mbps Ethernet LAN

    Add-In Card Slots: One PCI Express ×16 (graphics interface), Two PCI Express ×1, One PCI conventional

    External Connectors: One PS/2 keyboard port, One PS/2 mouse port, One VGA monitor port, Eight USB ports (six rear, two front), Two IEEE 1394a port (one rear, one front), One RJ-45 Ethernet LAN port, Seven audio jacks (five rear, two front), One S/PDIF optical audio port
    __________

    You can also look here for the same information, but it may be more readable or easier to understand. The only difference will be the Video Card because I recently upgraded it. You can find the specs for that here.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    SATA? if yes, probably works.

    You'll need to find out more about this... VooDooHDA may/probably supports this.

    Looks like a possible winner.
